    This is my go to mezcal to mix in cocktails. It provides a good smokiness with good value.

    The brand tasting notes are quite accurate. There is definitely some peppercorn and lemon zest here with agave sweetness. The nose is almost a sweet tequila. There is kind of a pungent kick even at 41% which isn’t necessarily bad just surprising.

    Notes of smoke, autumn leafs, pear, dairy and citrus. I also find some violets on the palate.

    Not a fan. The flavor tasted almost artificial, and extremely hot for a 41% abv mezcal.

    Maybe it’s my favorite mezcal. It has a lot of character to be a young mezcal, the flavors are elegant, with notes of white pepper, mineral flavors, salt, lime notes, alcoholic aroma, maguey and spicy

    Lot 16CUT1118. Astringent. Sharp aromas for 40% ABV. Leathery palate with a ton of smoke. This probably a decent mixer for Smokey cocktails. Not the best for sipping neat.

    I just keep coming back to this one. I have more expensive and pricy options but this is just a neat sipper. I get spearmint, citrus, lite smoke, a fruity sweetness, Woods, leather, earth, pepper. Actually more complex than I expected from the cheesy logo. Worth a try you may dig it.

    I agree with Tyler in that there is a punget kick that I would think would come from a mezcal in the 45-46% range. Not a fan.
